Beachy-Waves-2

I literally have three types of hairstyles straight, wavy and homeless. I have never been good at styling my own hair, I get bored, my arms get tired and I end up giving up. My hair is pretty fine but I have a lot of it. If I shower and let my hair dry it’s have a slight wavy but for the most part it’s pretty straight. But lately I have been styling my hair wavy and it’s so easy and perfect for summer. All you do is spritz sea salt stray into your hair with some water to dampen it. Then grab all your hair at the back, divide it into two sections, twist the two sections around each other and when you reach the end, just roll the twisted hair into a bun and secure it with a band.

Make sure it’s tight even if it’s not perfect. Let the bun be for a minimum of two hours. Open the bun and separate your curls gently, scrunch it with some mousse if you so desire and you’re ready to hit the beach!

DIY Sea-Salt Spray Ingredients

– 1 cup warm water

– 1 Tbsp. sea salt

– 1 tsp Epsom salt

– 1 Tbsp. organic coconut oil

– 5 drops essential oil, optional

You’re going to need to start out with very warm water, preferably heated on the stove to nearly (but not quite) boiling. Next, add the sea salt and Epsom salt and stir until they are dissolved. When the salt is dissolved, add one tablespoon of organic coconut oil. You’ll have to stir it until it is melted completely. If you want to add essential oil for scent (I love adding peppermint oil) add five drops at the end. Mix well, and then pour into a spray bottle. Let me know some of your go to looks down below!

My Wish List..

Ah wouldn’t it be nice…

Sometime I put collage together of items that I have my eye on and above are just a few items. I like mentally spending my wages even before they make it to my bank account. I’m not sure what I will purchase next but I can tell you it definitely won’t be the Chanel watch but a girl can dream…

MINI BODY SHOP HAUL-

I recently went to The Body Shop because I have been eyeing their Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Balm but ended up with a little extra goodies as well.

Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Balm-

This cleansing balm is designed to remove makeup and impurities away and leaving your skin feeling clean refreshed.

I personally love The Body Shop skincare and use their Tea Tree Oil face wash daily for years now, but this particular product blows me away. This is the best cleanser I ever bought. No other cleanser has ever removed makeup as gentle or as effective as this one. Just like the description says, it literally melts away the makeup, even on the eye area, and it doesn’t sting or blur the eyes. It leaves my skin is smooth and silky. Not greasy or oily at all! Just a little bit goes a long way, so the price is well worth it. I love the pleasant smell too. I will definitely buy this again and encourage you ladies to try it out.

Strawberry Eau De Toilette-

In the past I have bought and used the body mist in Strawberry and just love the scent. It’s very light and wearable not over powering at all. The strawberry scent is very sweet and fruity and the toilette contains strawberry extract, which is a nice feature. But the bottle is a third the size of the body spray, and they work the exact same, but this costs more and comes with way less. The smell is gone within 10 minutes honestly. So when I run out of the toilette I repurchase the body mist instead.

Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz-

I love this product. It’s quick and easy to use – just spritz it on your face when your skin is feeling dull and you will instantly have a radiant glow! TIP– this product also works great as a setting spray after you applied you makeup it locks it in place and doesn’t make you look matte at all!

-Mwah!

Summer Trend: The Romper!

For today’s blog, I wanted to shed some light on one of this season’s hottest trends:

The Romper!

This wardrobe staple is easily one of the most effortless items you can wear this summer, which is why I have picked up styles in both classic summer colours and fun feminine cut outs.

You can bet that this summer I will be sporting these all over town, styling them with sandals for brunch on the patio, or with heels or wedges for an evening out. For those chillier summer nights, I love to pair them with a jacket or sweater for a practical yet polished look.

Take a look at 5 of my top styles! Happy shopping!

I needed to pick up some items at the mall and
decided to treat myself to some goodies that I can’t wait to try.  Especially Mac’s Mineralize Skinfinsh in Lightscapade.I was originally going to get Mac’s Soft and Gentle which I’ve had before and loved, so I thought why not try something different.

I’m also on the hunt for the perfect baby pink lip that suits me and I’m feeling like it’s impossible. I always feel like it washes me out or its just light and looks like I have “foundation lips”. I’m still on the hunt but I picked up Mac’s Please Me, it’s more of a coral pink but it was the only one I was feeling. Any suggestions on a nice light pink lip for fair skin tones? Please let me know!

Dirty Little Secret

I have my fair share of dirty little secrets. Take, for instance, the fact that I actually enjoy Kourteny & Khole Take the Hampton’s or that I eat peanut butter right out of the jar. Oh, and here’s another, I always wear makeup to the gym. Funny thing is that most people would find that last one the most egregious. But before you (like my friends & gym mates) jump down my throat or post incredulous comments below, let me explain.

No I’m not sporting a smoky eye with a bold lip before I jump on the elliptical. I simply just touch up my face with a swipe (or, okay two) of my tinted moisturizer. Put a little gloss on to give my lip some colour. The odds are that I’m not alone in my pre workout prep so here are few of my tricks and potions to give me the I woke up like this look.

Red, Red Wine

Trend Alert!

Red-wine-lovers, this beauty trend is for you! At New York Fashion Week Fall 2014, deep berry and wine shades were being sported all over the runway.

If your daring and want to wear this lip just keep a few things in mind –

Finding the right shade is key; it all depends on your skin tone but lipsticks such as Mac’s Diva & Nars Scarlet Empress are pretty universal and compliment many skin tones.

If you have thin lips, a dark lipstick could make them appear even smaller. So start with a sheer stain and use a lip pencil to fill out the lip ever so slightly.

The key to wearing a berry lip is to keep the rest of the face fresh and glowing. Use a sheer foundation and concealer and skip powder entirely. Then apply a blush in a complementary shade or even take a simply sheer out the same lip color on cheeks!
